Bringing watchmaking back to the workshop, the Paulin sisters are supporting British craftsmanship and sustainability with their unique watches designed, manufactured and sold from their Glasgow workshop. To applaud the stunning creations, we’re giving one of their unique watches away to a lucky winner!
Specialising in high quality, design-led, quartz watches, Paulin is an artisan watch brand created by three sisters. Launching in 2014, the brand is inspired by the sisters’ great grandfather; George Henry Paulin, a distinguished sculptor who worked through both World Wars in London and Glasgow.
Paulin sources materials and components from all over the world, with a focus on supporting British manufacturers and using environmentally sustainable practices.
Situated in Glasgow’s Merchant city Paulin’s workshop is a multi-faceted creative space acting as office, shop, studio and leather workshop. The conceptual space offers a bespoke service for leather straps, instantly providing a personal touch to each Paulin watch.
Looking more closely at the models on offer, the C201 is the Paulin take on the classic dress watch, based around a chronograph movement under a domed crystal. The case is manufactured from finely brushed 316L grade stainless steel and the chronograph sub-dials include a 24h clock, and 30 minute and 60 second stopwatches. Straps include hand stitched options from British bridle leather at Clayton’s Tannery. The manufacture uses traditional, labour intensive methods of tanning which produces durable, beautifully finished leather that is incredibly hard wearing, and improves with age.
Paulin’s everyday watch is the Commuter with a minimal aesthetic, 37mm diameter and slim profile. The 3-piece case is also manufactured from 316L grade stainless steel, PVD coated and finely brushed to give a satin/matte finish. A sub-dial at six o’clock displays the seconds. We love the gorgeous Stingray strap, which is unlike any other kind of leather. Whilst the strap is comfortable and soft to wear, the outside is a constellation of rock-hard, glistening scales, each with a completely unique pattern and colouration. The leather is ethically farmed and constructed into straps in Europe.
